Personally I'll not recommend B&R but ultimately u like can liao


Wah recently this PW3003 watch seems popular....
It’s a nice piece, good looks and quite rugged and solid. I prefer it over the Hodinkee World Timer though that’s nice too

Dear cyrenic,

Smove offers (at cost) a 320i for your driving pleasure. Try it when you get back.
I must say that 90% of my driving experience is done overseas, and I enjoy it much more than the short stint I had in Singapore.

It’s the only place where you signal change lane on highway, got 80% chance the driver will speed up to cockblock you.

I’m thinking to get the Bell & Ross BR S Steel watch. It will be my first “proper” watch. Anybody have any advice? Is it decent?
I would say Bell and Ross watches have alot of wrist presence, people WILL notice it but when comes to resale, prepare to lose alot.

Driving in Tuscany region?

Beautiful scenery but watch out for no car zone in some towns, kana fine once



One of the few times (or only time) this lifetime that Iíll touch a BMW, so had to take a picture.

Driving in Italy wasnít too bad, despite all the websites warning people about Italian drivers.

Piedmont, but going to Tuscany in a bit too - with a Fiat instead.

Thanks, yeah, the ZTL are deadly, I had a few near misses because there’s so little info available. Hopefully didn’t kena any.

Maybe because the roads are wider and with less traffic. I don't share the same experience with you in my recent drives so I guess YMMV.

Italian roads not wider imho; hill town area those turnaround is like 1 lane wide. Many times itís just subjective; weekday Rome vs weekend como isnít fair comparison Italy bigger than sg

Ya, maybe it’s cities rather than SG or Italy.

When I was in the UK, closer to London it gets visibly worse.

That’s a lot of driving!

You might have an issue as UK is definitely different hand drive from Italy. Probably have to switch cars, but it’s not impossible to drive a car with wrong hand drive - just need to check traffic rules.

Don’t forget to get an International Driving Permit from AA, $20 valid for one year, just mar fun have to go to the counter to do on the spot, some of these countries’ rental agencies will ask for it (ie Italy did but not UK).
